The theme of this session is precipitation measurement/estimation techniques, and applications that demonstrate the downstream impacts of improved quantitative precipitation information for hydrologic, land surface, and weather modeling. Presentations in this session will focus on the following subjects: (1) Advances in precipitation measurement devices and methods; (2) Techniques for fusing precipitation observations from remote-sensing and in situ platforms, and related datasets; (3) Existing and emerging high-resolution real-time and retrospective precipitation data sets; (4) Effects of improving precipitation precision and accuracy on hydrologic predictions, fluxes from land surface models, Numeric Weather Model predictions, climate monitoring, and engineering design; (5) User requirements for precipitation information and gaps in existing data sets and observing platforms.
